January 29, 2019 - With the latest government shutdown now behind us, we anticipate SSA rolling out the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Suitability Review here in the Boston Region based on our public trust positions. These reviews will start with the rollout of an electronic questionnaire that will need to be completed on duty time. This questionnaire is all-encompassing as it goes over your biographical information, where you have lived, schools attended, employment activities, people you know, marital status, military history, selective service, travel, police record, illegal drugs, and financial record.
The questionnaire will be done on duty time, but we are providing the paper version for your familiarization with the content. A few employees will be selected for secondary interviews with OPM personnel. These secondary interviews will most likely be to clarify answers or to provide additional information. We will pass on more information as the rollout starts.
